Steven Alexander Skiöld Hanlin

Steven Alexander Skiöld Hanlin, 38, passed away at his home on November 16th. Sunshyneboy, MoonMan, and Stephenapolis are just some of the many nicknames he had among friends and family. Highly entertaining, and a Renaissance mind, he leaned heavily on science, artwork, and archaeology. He had the Irish wit from his late father and a cunning sense of humor. Despite his intelligence, charm, and endless curiosity, his life was cut short by his lifelong battle with depression, PTSD, and drinking. He was, and will always be loved by many, and saying he will be missed is an understatement.

Steven was preceded in death by his late father, C. David Hanlin, grandparents, Charles and May Hanlin, Morfar, Olof Skiöld, and Gomez. He is survived by his mother, Lisa Skiöldhanlin, sisters, Sarah Skiöld-Hanlin, Jacquie Ortiz, and Vicki Salmone, Mormor, Marilyn Skiöld, and family in Sweden, Norway, and the United States. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Cahokia Mounds or other charitable organizations. There will be no funeral. A remembrance will be scheduled for some time after the new year. Due to COVID-19, shiva will be restricted to immediate family only. Weber & Rodney Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be expressed online at
